About this title:

Synopsis:

This three-volume set of original readings is designed to reveal how and why children and young people have been repeatedly the subject of adult concern, censure, and intervention. It conceptualizes notions of ?childhood?, ?youth?, and ?adolescence? while also tracing the complex history of adult intervention and juvenile justice. In the 21st century discourses of protection, restoration, punishment, responsibility, rehabilitation, welfare, retribution, diversion, human rights, and so on exist alongside each other in a perpetually uneasy and contradictory manner. Youth Crime and Juvenile Justice provides a lens through which to navigate this complex field.

About the Author: John Muncie is Emeritus Professor of Criminology at the Open University, UK. He is the author of Youth and Crime (4th edition, Sage, 2014), and he has published widely on issues in comparative youth justice and children?s rights, including the co-edited companion volumes Youth Crime and Justice and Comparative Youth Justice (Sage, 2006). He has produced numerous Open University texts and readers, including Crime: Local and Global (Willan, 2010), Criminal Justice: Local and Global (Willan, 2010), The Problem of Crime (2nd edition, Sage, 2001), Crime Prevention and Community Safety (Sage, 2001) and Imprisonment: European Perspectives (Harvester, 1991). He has also contributed nine volumes to the The Sage Library of Criminology (Sage, 2007?2009). He is co-editor of the Sage journal Youth Justice: An International Journal.
